Box Score

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - The Southeast Missouri State soccer team took one step closer to bringing home its first Ohio Valley Conference Championship with a 7-0 throttling of Morehead State on Friday night at Houck Stadium. In the process Southeast picked up its 11th win of the season, an all-time single season best at Southeast.

Southeast (11-1 overall, 3-0 OVC) got on the board early when freshman forward Erin Slattery scored 1:59 into the game off a rebounds shot from senior Nichole Thiele. The Otahkians would go almost 33 minutes without scoring before freshman Diana Poovey scored her third goal of the season to put Southeast up 2-0 at halftime.

The second half was all Southeast as the Otahkians scored five goals on the Morehead State (2-13, 0-3) defense. Slattery scored her second goal of the game nine minutes into the second frame and then Thiele added her sixth goal of the season and 26th goal of her career eight minutes later to put Southeast up 4-0. Freshman Marla Gianino would add two second half goals and Poovey would add her second goal of the game to push the final score to 7-0.

Southeast dominated every aspect of the game, outshooting the Eagles 31-2 for the game. Morehead never had a good scoring chance all night. Southeast also lead on corners, outdueling Morehead 12-0. Senior goalkeeper Beth Guccione recorded her 12th shutout of her career and ninth of the season, which broke the Southeast single season record.

The Otahkians also won their 11th straight game at Houck Stadium, dating back to last season. In that streak, Southeast has outscored its opponents 33-0. The seven goals in a game were the most by Southeast since scoring nine against Youngstown State on September 3rd of last season.

The seven goals were a Houck Stadium record.

Southeast will be back in action on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. against Lipscomb, a team that lost to Morehead 4-0 earlier this season.
